Please note that this opportunity is sponsored by Harvard University, and not the Career Development Center or Rutgers University.
Harvard University is offering mentoring and research opportunities for students interested in pursuing STEM careers.
Mentorship for all students: We know very well how challenging the summer research internship and graduate school application process can be. This is why we, current Harvard Biophysics graduate students, would like to offer our help. Regardless of your field of study or academic stage, you can choose to be paired up with a student mentor to talk with you about research and STEM opportunities, as well as help with any (and every) part of the application process. If you would like to be paired up with a Biophysics mentor, or be added to our mailing list for future opportunities, please fill out this quick form.
For senior students: If you are considering a PhD in STEM, Harvard Biophysics might be for you!
About Biophysics: Our graduate program welcomes students from a wide range of STEM disciplines (e.g. computer science, molecular biology, physics, mathematics, chemistry, etc.) who want to apply quantitative tools to biological and biomedical questions. With a large and diverse group of faculty across multiple campuses, Biophysics allows incoming students to explore a large range of research directions. The program is very flexible and allows each student to craft their own path. Please read more about Harvard Biophysics in the attached flyer, or on our website. You can also respond to this email with any questions! We would also like to remind you that you can request an application fee waiver, if the admissions application fee presents a hardship for you or your family.
For junior/sophomore students: We would like to point you to some of the many internship opportunities available at Harvard. These are a great way to gain additional research experience, connect with Biophysics faculty, and learn more about STEM PhDs at Harvard. Please see the list below:
- Harvard-wide Summer Programs: https://gsas.harvard.edu/diversity/outreach-programs/other-summer-programs
- Harvard Post-baccalaureate Programs: https://gsas.harvard.edu/diversity/research-scholar-initiative
- SHURP (Summer Honors Undergraduate Research Program): http://dms.hms.harvard.edu/diversity/summer/SHURP.html
- Systems Biology Summer Internship: https://sysbio.med.harvard.edu/summer-internships
- BCMP Summer Internship: https://bcmp.hms.harvard.edu/education-and-training/summer-internship
Finally, we would like to point out that there is a large number of excellent STEM PhD programs at Harvard, and some of them might be reaching out to your students in the next few weeks. For a comprehensive list of all PhD programs, please visit Harvard GSAS website. We encourage all students to consider their options carefully, and apply to programs that fit their interests best (please note that Harvard will accept up to 3 applications to graduate-degree programs).
We are looking forward to hearing from you!
